The sub can be found on match centre on website/app and will show them in fifth position. Starting positions and bench players are also updated at this time.

    s Sicily really important to get right now?
    Because my backline is:
    Hall, Whitfield, Stewart, Hewett, NOD and Stein
    Thinking about Hall to sicily and Stein to Rioli
    Or should I go Stewart to Sicily and upgrade Josh Kelly to Jack Steele in the midfield?
